A Fine Arts Limited Edition Book Publication Project

“The goal of this project is to create a first edition set of hand printed illustrations printed from the original woodcuts of a series of filmstrips produced for Encyclopeadia Britannica in the early 1960’s. Over 180 blocks were used to create the six “Classics of English Literature,” including “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,” “Morte d’Arthur,” “The Nun’s Priest Tale,” “Beowulf,” “The Second Shepherd’s Play,” and “Everyman.”
